Philip Glass - Escape (The Hours OST)

Philip Glass - Escape! (The Hours OST)

It is impossible to imagine this movie without the music, and the music without the movie.

The music of Philip Glass has the emotional depth and honesty; the sadness and enlightenment it provides is truly revolutionary.

The Hours is the original soundtrack album, on the Elektra/Nonesuch label, of the 2002 Academy Award- and Golden Globe-winning film The Hours, starring Nicole Kidman (who won the Academy Award for Best Actress for her role as "Virginia Woolf" in this film), Meryl Streep and Julianne Moore. The original score were composed by Philip Glass.

The album won the BAFTA Award for Best Film Music. It was also nominated for the Academy Award for Best Original Score, the Golden Globe Award for Best Original Score and the Grammy Award for Best Score Soundtrack Album for a Motion Picture, Television or Other Visual Media (lost to the score of the film The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers).
